Ocean Song Villa is breathtakingly beautiful. The views, the infinity pool, the landscaping, the architecture, the comfortable places to hang out, tile work and stonework...Truly heavenly. Ricky & Penny are such gracious hosts and made us feel right at home, pointing out highlights of the Villa and grounds, and in St Kitts, that should not be missed. We celebrated 5 special October family occasions within the week in style, thanks to their care, and (of course) the frequent attention of Pepper, the Villa non-house cat.
I am a flight attendant who has traveled the world renting properties through different sites. We stayed at Ocean Song Villa for a week and couldn't have picked a better spot for all of us. The house is beautiful with stunning views of Nevis and sunsets that embrace the mind body and soul. The outdoor open spaces create a place for everyone to be together but if you want a little cozy spot to be alone or with just a few, you have it all there and more. Words can not explain how beautiful this house is! The bedrooms are spacious, well decorated with King sized beds and bathrooms in each. The master upstairs also has a magnificient outdoor shower and a private patio area overlooking the ocean with lounge chairs. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed to dine in; top notch appliances and bar supplies. The living quarters and bedrooms all face the ocean with a quaint little library/sitting room, large dining room table and cozy but spacious living room. We used every inch of the property! The 2 for 1 private beach location with kitchen, honor bar, outdoor covered patio with plenty of seating, private dock into ocean and fishing equipment, are all added gems to this property. We enjoyed sunning on the beach sand but snorkeling/swimming would be better down the road a bit only because of the coral beds that come so close to the water entry are very difficult to navigate bare foot in most areas once in the water. "Turtle Beach" location is a fairly quiet retreat, of beautiful hillside homes, on the east end of the island but is just a short car ride to everything if you're looking for some local night life or other sandy beaches for swim/snorkeling. Approximately a 15 minute ride to Frigate Bay where you can grocery shop, enjoy little local coffee shops/eateries, golf or take a fun Cross Fit class outdoors in a grassy park, which is located in the center of Frigate Bay. My parents are an active 80 years, we are mid 50's and highly active so this had it all in terms of tranquility, privacy for family time with opportunity to cook inside or grill out on property, easy short walk for parents to go to private beach front property by themselves or just hang out in beautiful infinity pool at the house. We felt safe leaving my parents at the house when we would separate for some strenuous activities like, Running the hilly 8 mile terrain into Frigate Bay, Hiking the canyon of Bloody River, or attending "On the Rock CrossFit" classes. Other activities we all enjoyed together were: Scenic Island Train Ride, Catamaran sailing to Nevis, exploring Brimstone Hill Fortress and fine dining on the beautiful Ottley's Sugar Plantation grounds. Again I can't say enough of this well kept gem other than we look forward to returning! Thank you to Penny and Ricky Pereira for providing such a well kept vacation rental. You both showed professionalism in communication throughout the entire process of renting. From the warm "Welcome to St Kitts" greeting, to the good bye upon departing, to confirm our satisfaction.
Thank you so much to Penny and Ricky for our stay in their Paradise! We enjoyed every minute of the perfect Caribbean surroundings. Loved seeing the monkeys, mongooses, hummingbirds and the large turtles. You can almost reach out and touch Nevis when you float in the infinity pool.
The accommodations were extremely comfortable, nicely decorated with historical touches and well kept.
Thanks again and see you next year!
Ocean Song in St Kitts is the quintessential island villa. A luxury retreat of incomparable beauty with such stunning views of Nevis that it does indeed, takes your breath away.
We are four couples on our 20th Caribbean villa adventure. We look for location, style, en suite bathrooms, infinity pool, grill, bar, lanai for sunsets and stargazing.
Ocean Song has it all plus the decor and furniture so tastefully done that we felt immediately at home. The beach and ocean below was fabulous and the "beach and ocean" and spirit of St Kitts was evident in each room and outdoor venue. Treasures abound; sunken ship bells, giant turtle shells, port holes, cannons, ancient bottles and the myriad art and handicraft of the islands.
A villa can only be as fantastic as it's owners. Penny and Rick have created the perfect island home. From the moment we talked to Penny and booked the entire property, Penny was taking care of every detail to make sure that our dream vacation was a dream come true. She answered all our questions, followed up with rental vehicles, licenses, reservations, places to go and when to go. She made sure their property manager, Franklin, picked us up at the airport in our vehicles, took us grocery shopping enroute to the Villa. He was on call anytime we needed him - outstanding! He showed us everything then left us to soak up the ambience and views while we soaked in the infinity pool with chilled champagne - toasting "Life Doesn't Get Better Than This".
Penny made sure we had sight seeing tours, trips to Nevis, to forts, plantations, sugar mills, shopping, fishing, snorkeling, beach bar hopping, anything and everything we wanted.
Thank you Penny and Rick for an unforgettable Caribbean adventure. At our post island party we will raise a toast to you and "breathtaking" Ocean Song.
The Ocean Song Villa is everything a vacation rental can be. The owners have thought of everything. Before we even arrived, they sent us information on grocery stores, car rentals, restaurants, and things to do (with phone numbers and websites). The care taker, Franklyn (a very kind patient guy) met us at the airport and guided us to the villa. So many rentals have bad decor and college type furniture. Not this one. Our family felt completely at home with lots of unique decor items, great beds, plenty of towels and linens. There is even a cat (Pepper) who hangs out to keep you company. The pool is gorgeous- my sons spent many hours there. The beach house is a less than 5 minute walk from the villa with fishing poles, masks, snorkels, and boogie boards. We did lots of stuff at the beach. Some people have noted a low of seaweed at Turtle beach, but that is mainly at high tide. Fine at low tide, and if you just swim/snorkel a short way out it's fine. There were other tenants at the beach house (upstairs) who were really nice and it was fun to talk with them and hang out. They even have a couple of local cell phones to use for local calls (and get great advice from Franklyn too!). The villa is in a more secluded area, which we liked. There are several great restaurants nearby. The villa made our trip very relaxing. WAY better than sharing our vacation with a thousand "friends" at the Marriott! Would definitely stay again.
